Senator HARRADINE(9.33) — Senator Hill indicated in his speech that perhaps some of the things he had mentioned were what I might be searching for. I would like to draw his attention to the fact that long before he got into this act I had been involved in the industrial area and developing policies both nationally and internationally on these very matters. I suggest that he take a look at some of the things that I have written about the matters that he addressed. I take exception to the implication that I am anxious to have today devoted to the Sex Discrimination Bill. I would have thought he would have known that I am most anxious not to have it devoted to that subject, as I have expressed the viewpoint that it is not necessary that the Bill proceed through this chamber now because it cannot become law, the House of Representatives having risen for Christmas and being unable to receive it until next year.
